FIRST CREW ROWS IN ONE SHELL AS ICE CAKE WRECKS ANOTHER

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

While two University crews had their first workouts in shells yesterday afternoon, the first 150-pound boat met with the initial mishap of the 1926 season.

Captain Winthrop's crew rowed in its regular order, with the exception of Hubbard, who has been ill. Canning rowed in Hubbard's number 4 seat yesterday, and Weymer replaced Canning in the second boat.

The accident to the 150-pound shell happened near the Brighton Bridge. There was a considerable amount of ice floating in the river, and the 150 pound crew rowed into a large cake that was half submerged. The shell, with a large hole in it did not sink immediately, and the oarsmen were able to get out without being forced to swim. The shell was towed back to the boathouse by one of the launches.
